Thousands of girls across the globe are stepping into the shoes of leaders in the fields of media, entertainment, business and politics on 11 October to demand girls and young women are portrayed as equally powerful as men.

How we work

We are committed to making a lasting impact on the lives of the most vulnerable and excluded children while supporting children’s rights and gender equality.

 Annual Review 2020

Annual review and accounts

This year we reached more girls than ever before, strengthened our programmes supporting gender equality and increased our ability to influence change. But the year also brought unprecedented challenge – the global COVID-19 pandemic with profound implications for girls’ health, rights and freedoms.
